Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
  • 2 large red, yellow, or orange bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large red or yellow onion, sliced
  • Juice of one lime
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • Cilantro, optional
  • Lime wedges, optional
  • Avocado or guacamole, optional
  • Sour cream, optional
  • Pico de gallo, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper or coat an unlined pan with spray oil.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into thin strips. Place in a bowl with bell peppers and onion then toss with oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano and salt until well coated. Transfer the fajita mixture to the sheet pan and spread out evenly.
  3. Place the pan in the oven on the middle rack and roast for 15 minutes. Turn broiler on and broil the chicken and vegetables for another 3-5 minutes to allow them to brown. Remove from the oven and stir in lime juice.
  4. Serve the fajita mixture with warmed corn tortillas. Serve with a lime wedge and garnish with cilantro, sour cream, avocado or guacamole, and/or pico de gallo, as desired.
